“SOHO Rain Check” Fundraiser to be part of BOS Plaza Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
In the wake of severe weather that shortened the 10th annual SOHO Music Festival, a “SOHO Rain Check” fundraiser will be held as part of the BOS Plaza ribbon cutting ceremony this Friday, June 13, from 5:00pm- 9:00pm, to help continue the fundraising efforts for the SOHO organization, and their 10 local charities.
The event is free to the public and will include live music by Dave Littrell as well as the unveiling of the PCCC’s “Before I Die” Wall. Organizers of the festival will be set up to accept donations. In addition, the PCCC will donate a portion of ticket sales for concerts held on the BOS Plaza later this month to the SOHO organization.
